This site offers an online demo where you're welcome to tinker around to get a sense of what the script does, what features it offers and how it works. Then, once you've whet your appetite, there's a free, fully functional, GNU-licensed version available for download. Alternatively, if you want to avoid the hassle of setting it up on your own server, you can donate $20 or more to get an account on this site, letting you generate up to 5,000 records at a time (instead of the maximum 100), and let you save your data sets.

One of my favorite security measures here at Perishable Press is the site’s virtual Blackhole trap for bad bots. The concept is simple: include a hidden link to a robots.txt-forbidden directory somewhere on your pages. Bots that ignore or disobey your robots rules will crawl the link and fall into the trap, which then performs a WHOIS Lookup and records the event in the blackhole data file. Once added to the blacklist data file, bad bots immediately are denied access to your site. I call it the “one-strike” rule: bots have one chance to follow the robots.txt protocol, check the site’s robots.txt file, and obey its directives. Failure to comply results in immediate banishment. The best part is that the Blackhole only affects bad bots: normal users never see the hidden link, and good bots obey the robots rules in the first place.

We have created an Amazon AMI (Amazon Machine Image) to allow for quick and easy installs of Ghost. This means rather than having a blank Linux image that you then have to install node.js, npm, Ghost, etc. on, it will already be all setup and running once Amazon creates your instance.
This is our very first version of this, so we will be making many upgrades to it in the future (specific www user, better logging, etc) but this should get the job done for now (you can always make those changes yourself if you want). If you would rather install Ghost from scratch instead of using our AMI, check out this article. Now on to the install!

We have covered a lot of cool CSS3 capabilities – from Color Gradients, Transtions, and Animation. Actually, there are also several properties in CSS2 that is really useful but is less-known, including one we are going to discuss in this post: CSS Counter.
As you may already knew, when we add lists with the <ol> element, the list is numbered automatically. By using CSS Counter, we can even number any element. So, let’s see how it is done.

CAcert.org is a community driven Certificate Authority that issues certificates to the public at large for free.
CAcert's goal is to promote awareness and education on computer security through the use of encryption, specifically with the X.509 family of standards. We have compiled a document base (Wiki) that has helpful hints and tips on setting up encryption with common software, and general information about Public Key Infrastructures (PKI).
For the enthusiast looking to dip their toe in the water, we have an easy way of obtaining certificates you can use with your email program. You can use these not only to encrypt, but to prove to your friends and family that your email really does come from you.
For administrators looking to protect the services they offer, we provide host and wild card certificates which you can issue almost immediately. Not only can you use these to protect websites, but also POP3, SMTP and IMAP connections, to list but a few. Unlike other certificate authorities, we don't limit the strength of the certificates, or the use of wild card certificates. Everyone should have the right to security and to protect their privacy, not just those looking to run ecommerce sites.
If you're extremely serious about encryption, you can join CAcert's Assurance Programme and Web of Trust. This allows you to have your identity verified to obtain added benefits, including longer length certificates and the ability to include your name on email certificates.
StartSSL™ est la nouvelle marque déposée pour des produits et des solutions de l'autorité de certification de StartCom®.
StartCom® t'offre la diverse infrastructure principale publique (PKI) et d'autres solutions numériques de sécurité pour vos affaires et usage personnel.
PHP Error, error reporting done right!
Better error messages, full syntax highlighting, code snippets, and works for ajax too
ICEcoder is an open-source browser code editor, which provides a modern approach to building websites. By allowing you to code directly within the web browser, online or offline, it means you only need one program (your browser) to develop sites, plus can test on actual web servers. After development, you can also maintain the website easily, all of which make for speedy and smart development.
Because it can be web based you can use it from any internet enabled computer with a modern browser and because it's open-source, customise it to your liking, integrating with online services. If you'd like to use it as a desktop code editor, no problems, you only need PHP 5.0+ (though 5.3+ is recommeded), so you can use on Linux and on PC via MAMP or XAMPP and Mac via WAMP (or another PHP installation).
ICEcoder was created because web devs (like myself) always complained their code editor didn't do exactly what they like. They're often bloated with features, slow and awkward. Conversely, ICEcoder is lightweight (under 1.2mb including all plugins) and boots in seconds (often 1-2s). Oh, and it's also free (and always will be!). Enjoy!
Gaupol is an editor for text-based subtitle files. It supports multiple subtitle file formats and provides means of creating subtitles, editing texts and timing subtitles to match video. The user interface is designed with attention to batch processing of multiple documents and convenience of translating.
Gaupol should run on all Unix-like (GNU/Linux, *BSD, etc.) operating systems and on Windows. Technically, it should run on Mac as well, but that has not been tested nor made convenient. Gaupol's user interface is based on the GTK+ toolkit and has been designed to best fit the GNOME desktop environment.
Gaupol includes a separately installable, user-interface-independent, general-purpose Python package called aeidon for reading, writing and manipulating text-based subtitle files. See the development page for details.
Gaupol is free software released under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

Today we’d like to show you some ideas for creative loading effects. Nowadays, many different page loading animations are used in websites; just think of the subtle red loading bar seen on YouTube. When loading something on a page, be it images or the next content, we don’t have to be restricted to a tiny loading indicator but we can get creative and big. So the idea is to indicate that something is happening in a stylish way without creating too much distraction for the user. There might be actions where this might not be adequate, but in some situations it might be quite fitting and amplifying for the overall design.
You're minding your own business, casually browsing around on the World Wide Web. You navigate to a page that begins to load and render, but suddenly it stalls. For a few seconds you stare at a partial white screen, appalled at the hiatus your device has placed on your browsing flow. Finally, the page yields and loads the remainder of the content. What just happened? It's likely that you've fallen prey to a poorly implemented Facebook, Twitter, or Google Plus share button.
Social Networking widgets are a digital blot on the beautiful canvas we call the web. They often do not (with intent) blend with a site's design or with each other.
